Excellent!! Absolute must...

  • 5 of 5

Home is beautiful in and out. It was extremely spacious where as noone was bumping into one another or crowded in each space. Bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of closet and drawer space needed to unpack freely. Kitchen had all the kitchenware needed to cook and serve as if I were in my own home. The focus point for us was the large bar/stools area.. With all the modern technology today with cellphones, iPads, tablets, and laptops, everyone tends to end up in their own space with social media, playing games, emails, etc. Not at this home.. The large bar area kept everyone close together, socializing, drawing, coloring, playing games, cards, reminiscing for long periods of time without any electronics!! Meals were conveniently served there and with the two little ones laying on the the adjacent family room floor rug watching cartoons, clean up was a breeze.. The back deck was also a focal point for us. Large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably with two patio sets. We enjoyed the tranquil air while the kids blew bubbles. I also had my daily early morning coffee on deck and took photos of the deers and 5 turkeys passing through. The hot tub was delightfully ready upon arrival and the temperature of the house remained comfortable on both floors throughout our stay. They had family games available which was a plus. I had only taken two with me in which I didn't have to unload. Might I add, Renters should respect in keeping these games intact upon usage as you would in your own home. The laundry room was convenient as I was able to wash my linens upon removal and the beddings before placing them back. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and spent quality time with one another. Everyone including my grandchild are already asking when will we return.

John was great in communicating with me throughout the reservation process , prior to arrival, after arrival and departure. I only had to call him once for a question in which he answered right away.

Thank you John and Carol for sharing your home with us and the memories to carry with us...

Best regards

Vivian. S

Beautiful Spacious home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this house enough justice. Beautiful home that accoomadated our entire family. We had a total of 5 kids and 11 adults and we never felt crowded. The home is equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils and the bar was well stocked with everything needed to make your own cocktails. The house was cleaned upon entry and The central A.C was a huge relief to come home to from the heated outdoors. We enjoyed the hot tub, and outdoor deck fully functionally for outdoor grilling. We saw a family of deers everyday in the backyard woods which was awesome to see. If you want me to nitpick at anything negative, The gas grill on the deck was dirty, we had to wash and scrub the grill clean and also unclog the gas burners because they weren't clean properly from prior usage so it didn't allow the flame to come on ! other than that we have no other negative comments about the home. Will look into doing it again

Great house, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this home really don't do much justice for the actual home. It is extremely spacious, yet has such a wonderful cozy feeling to it. There were many highlights to this trip that my family and I enjoyed, including the hot tub, which is outside and had already been on and set up for us to enjoy. The wrap around bar in the living room was great and seated us all perfectly allowing us to face each other while playing games, listening to music and even playing pool. Besides our actual stay, the communication with John was great, he was able to get us our linens and towels immediately and was very helpful when it came to suggestions of nearby dining. When John wasn't available to contact me directly as I was booking the home, he made sure to have to his son contact me and he was very helpful and nice as well. The only complaint that I can make is that the oven did not heat up as quickly as we would have liked, so I wasn't easy to cook dinner, but much easier to cook breakfast as all we need was the stove top. I would suggest maybe upgrading the stove, but it's nothing major. Overall, we had a great stay and definitely will rent again! Thank you John!

Great, Fun Stay with Plenty of Room

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was over Super Bowl weekend in 2016. We couldn't have asked for a better place that accommodated 5 couples and 1 child. The huge bar was the focal point of our gathering and we were able to enjoy drink, food, fun all together in that room. All the amenities listed where accurate and was a well maintained property. John the property owner was very responsive and had a quick turn around time returning the security deposit. I would recommend staying at John's property and when we return, we will book again.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this home this past Christmas. It was a beautiful, cozy and nicely decorated home (with Christmas decorations too). The home was well-maintained and equipped with Kitchenware and cleaning products. The home had a nice spacious layout for our large family to congregate and not feel like we were on top of each other . The owner was fantastic, he was always available to answer questions before our stay and even came to fix something that was not in need of immediate repair. I would recommend this home to my family and friends and hope to stay there again in the future.

Feels just like home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this house over the holidays. We were very impressed upon arrival. The house was clean, had a cozy feel and was nicely decorated (with holiday decorations). The house was very spacious and well layed out. It was fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, cleaning products etc. The owner of the house was fantastic and was available if we had any questions. He even came during our stay to repair something that wasn't in need of immediate repair. I would recommend this house to any of my friends and family.

The lake offers a variety of activities, from fishing to paddle boat rentals. Tennis Courts, Baseball fields and Basketball Courts are all located within the community. For those who enjoy the winter sports, Jack Frost/Big Boulder are minutes away and Camelback is less then a half hour drive. Hickory Run State Park with boulder field is close by for hiking and sight seeing. Or maybe you're looking for a day of shopping and a night out. The Tangier Outlets are within 25 minutes from the house, Shenanigans and other restaurants/bars are close by, and of course Mount Airy Casino is only 25 minutes away. And an absolute must for breakfast while staying in the area is Piggy's, located in Lake Harmony.
